Menkes disease, an X-linked recessive disorder of copper metabolism, has recently been mapped to Xq13.3 by two Menkes patients carrying chromosome rearrangements within this region. The breakpoints have been investigated by nonisotopic in situ suppression hybridization using YACs isolated from this region with the flanking markers DXS56 and PGK1. Three YACs were extending over the breakpoints at Xq13.3 and were shown to be overlapping by partial digest restriction maps, IRS-PCR fingerprinting...Expand abstract
